Yungaba May 1965 #6

This is me on the front lawn of the famous old house, Yungabah, under the Story Bridge at Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, in May 1965.

 

As newly arrived Ten Pound Poms, we stayed in dormitory-style accommodation here until we were able to move to the Wacol Migrant Hostel.

 

Mum tells me that the "thump thump thump" of the cars on the bridge overhead used to keep her awake at night.
